Adjunct Instructor of French
M.A. French, Illinois State University
As a proud alumna of IWU (double major in French and Music), my favorite thing about teaching at IWU is that it's like coming home. I have so many great memories of my time spent as a student at IWU that I want to make it an equally great experience for my students.
Courses taught: I have taught Beginning French I and II (101 and 102) as well as Intermediate French I (201). I taught at IWU for the first time in 2004.
Honor and Awards: I am a member of Pi Kappa Phi and Pi Delta Phi honorary societies. In 2002 was awarded the Monserrat Vilarrubla Award for Excellence in Teaching, a graduate student teaching assistant award at Illinois State.
Professional Service: For many years I have been a reader for the College Board AP French Language and Culture Exam.
Favorite Quote: Il n'y a vraiment pas de justice! Believe it or not, this phrase was in a dialogue that I learned in junior high, and I still like to quote it when things just don't seem fair!
Favorite Place: There's really no place like Paris, especially les pâtisseries! I love French food!
